Best Windows SW to sync Calendar and contacts with iCloud/iPhone?

Q: Best Windows SW to sync Calendar and contacts with iCloud/iPhone?

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'd really appreciate any input.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I understand that one person may not have all the answers to all the parts of this; I am on an iphone forum as well, trying to figure ... Read more

I've had an Android for almost 2 years, and although I really love it I'm considering getting an iPhone when my contract ends (I have an iPod touch and just really starting liking some of the apps and user experience)

The only issue for me is I'm a heavy Google user: gmail, google calendar, google contacts, etc.

I love how right now I can add a contact or calendar event on my phone, and it immediately syncs to my Google account (or vice-versa syncs to my phone).

I did a bit of research so far on how this would work on an iPhone, and it seems there are apps but that you still need iTunes? Is that true? Or is there an app that will mimic the functionality I get on my Android?

I do plan to jailbreak it, if that helps any.

Hi everyone!

What is the best way to sync my emails, contacts, and calendar with my Outlook 2010 (win7 pc), iPhone, and iPad2?

Basically, I want to send/receive emails to all devices, and update my calendar and contacts on my Outlook, and then have my iOS devices update automatically be synced with my Outlook contacts and calendar, and vice versa.

I've used Microsoft Exchange in the past to do this, but it seems like over kill... and it's a little overcomplicated for me. I was hoping I could just do all this with Gmail, but it seems that I need MS Exchange to do it that way too.

Any help and advice is very appreciated!!!
I'll be on the forum all day, so let me know if I need to clarify what I'm asking.

I have three sets of contacts - WLM for my computer and iPad for email, and iPhone contacts that I use primarily for phone calls.

Last night I cleaned up my WLM contacts by deleting many and combining some. Now, I want to transport the cleaned contacts listings to two iPhones and an iPad. I have a CSV copy of the cleaned WLM contacts, and can easily add phone numbers.

I also want to sync all of the devices so that a change to one appears on all. Is this done through the cloud?

Hello. I hope this is the correct forum.
 
Two questions about syncing an iPhone.
 
1. My iPhone 5 was at capacity so I deleted songs. I then backed it up to the iCloud. Now my iPhone 6 has larger capacity. How can I sync all songs in my iTunes library to the new iPhone? I assume there is a manual way of doing this and then the songs will sync to the iCloud in due course.
 
2. I've never known how to sync my calendar and contacts between my Outlook and my iPhone. How do I do this?

On my friend's Win 8.1 computer, he accesses his email joe@joe.com using Gmail. He also has a Windows phone and accesses that same Gmail account there.

On the phone it is set to also sync the Contacts and Calendar. But the Contacts and Calendar are not syncing. He claims that it used to work, and that seems to be true since there are a lot of contacts listed on the phone.

I've done some research and found that Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is used for this syncing. I've also found that there is inconsistent info about whether or not GMail still supports EAS. Some sources on the web say Gmail does not support it any longer, some say they only still support it if you have Google Apps for Business. But my friend does have Google Apps for Business, I confirmed that by checking in his Gmail account, I can see the history of the billing, he has had it for almost two years.

Can anyone help clear this up?

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account (outlook.com) and use that to sync all the calendars

Outlook.com account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the outlook.com calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the outlook.com / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> oulook.com === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/outlook.com

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/outlook.com calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the outlook.com calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

All of MS' apps are also available on iOS. The iPhone won't sync everything automatically after initial setup like WP/WM does, but if you download outlook and onedrive for iOS and enter your credentials in the apps it will sync mails, calendar entries and photos in the same way. You'll have to be more specific about what you mean with "notes". OneNote maybe?

Hey, guy, how do you back up your iPhone(photos,videos,important messages etc)? iCloud only provides us 5G space for free, and iTunes is complicated to operate. Do you have any good idea?
 

A:[iPhone backup] How do you backup your iphone? With iCloud or other tools?

Windows should be able to get all your photos and videos off your iPhone with no problem.

For contacts, I think these will be synced to iCloud, but any contact in your iPhone is pulled from existing contact lists in associated accounts already. So if you linked a Gmail account with all your contacts in it for example, you wouldn't have to do anything. There are free apps that will generate an actual contacts file for you though. I usually do both just to be sure I don't lose any important numbers.

Same goes for messages. There are free apps that can generate a file to export and restore from.

iTunes is good if you want a "one-stop shop" for backing stuff up, but I don't blame you for not wanting to use it.

I cannot sync photos from my iPhone to my PC.

I have 73 photos on my iPhone in my "camera roll" (I know, I'm taking a lot of pictures). I have no other photos or albums on my phone.

I can sync some data from my iPhone to my PC. For instance, I can sync my "Notes" off my iPhone to the "Notes" in Outlook.

I cannot sync photos. Very frustrating.

FYI, when my iPhone is attached to the computer w the USB cable and I go to "My Computer" in Windows Explorer, my PC does NOT recognize the iPhone. However, iTunes DOES recognize my iPhone.

- 16 GB
- v 3.1.2 (the latest is 3.1.3)

Hello,

The Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular NTOSKRNL.EXE / NTKRNLMP.EXE / NTKRNLPA.EXE / NTKRPAMP.EXE) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( Windows 7 Solution Center )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds

Hope this helps,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and MicroSoft Office 10 on my desktop computer, use Outlook for email and contacts, used to use the Outlook calendar till I got an iPhone 5S a few months ago, so now my calendar is the iCloud calendar, viewed in Outlook. The notes section of iCloud calendar entries uses very tiny font that is barely visible. I cannot find a way to change the font in the iCloud calendar in Outlook. There is no "format text" tab in the iCloud calendar to choose font type and size, like there is in the Outlook calendar. I spoke to Apple, who said this is a MicroSoft issue. I don't find anything regarding this when I Google "font size icloud calendar". I realize I can highlight the notes and make them larger with the mouse so I can read them on the desktop, but I would prefer to set my default font as a larger size.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any help I can get.

I am running outlook 7 windows 7.

In the past, the problem was that the send date above emails in the to send folder said "none" and the email topic was bold faced, and not regular in italics. It will not send.

I resolved this [and SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT DOWN] by going to the trust center and I believe disabling the icloud item.

HOWEVER: subsequent to all this, I finally figured out how to sync my outlook calender [not outlook contacts, cloud contacts and iphone5 phone contacts are synced.

HOWEVER, the original problem is back, and windows shows that only calendar in icloud is synced, not "calendar" and not whatever "calendar from icloud in icloud" [just uncheck both and I eliminate dupes]

IF i start screwing around in the trust center and disabling the "icloud outlook ad-in", which I know played a role in getting the send to work, will I eliminate that "calendar in icloud" that continues to works so well? And if so, how do I get it back to sync with iphone 5?

A:How to fix a send issue WITHOUT screwing up my sync to icloud

Like you I am running Outlook 7 under Windows 7, 64 bit, and have version 3, the latest, for the iCloud control panel. And, like you, I have long ceased to attempt any kind of sync for anything other than the calender. If you go into the trust center and disable the icloud add in outlook will cease to sync with icloud. Indeed, only yesterday I ran a test: I added an appointment to my iphone and it did not appear on my outlook calendar. I had disabled the icloud add in before it was the only way to get anything to send from the outbox. As soon as I re enabled it the appointment appeared, only now I had the email issue.

It is interesting to note that when I went into the account settings in outlook to be sure the problem wasn't there, I was able to send the test message without issue, so it have to believe that all my pop server numbers are correct and the problem lies with the add in. Apple support blame Microsoft, who blames Apple. As with this entry, no almost a year old, I have never gotten any answers from this forum.

Should you have learned how to handle the issue, please let me know.

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

However I am having problems setting up my iCloud account in Windows 10. I enter the relevant details but the "looking for your settings" process never completes. Could this be because I use the same email address for Gmail and my Apple ID?

I suspect I'm making a basic error but would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

Hi,

I can not add my iCloud account in Manage Accounts. It says it cannot find info. My iCloud User Name and Password are correct.
I would like to sync my iCloud calender to my two Windows 10 PC's and my Microsoft Windows 10 phone (when it arrives).
I have tried with both the PC's.
Grateful for all help. Thank you.

Hi,

Please note that this is not Windows Live (Hotmail) but the offline Windows application with that name. I find Windows Live Mail as a great way to manage my email, I want to manage my contacts there too. However, all my contacts are currently loaded on my iPhone (I have the contacts manually created on the phone a long time ago).

Thanks for your suggestions.

A:How to export iPhone contacts to Windows Live Mail?

If you want to directly export the contacts use a small application intended to run on your PC called CopyTrans Contacts.

1. Run the tool on your computer and connect your iPhone. You can download the program from here: export iPhone contacts

2. Once your iPhone contacts appear, drag and drop a selection to a folder on your PC

3. Select the type of contact files you wish your iPhone contacts to get exported in. Windows Live Mail recognizes Windows Contacts, so select that format


4. Your iPhone contacts will be saved to your PC. Now go to your Windows Live Mail application and import the contacts from the folder on your PC where you saved them in

Hello everyone,
I am asking for help on one particular problem.
If you could spare some time here is my question:
- I run Win7 Ultimate and Outlook 2007.
- I enter my hotmail address into Outlook Connector, so Hotmail is my default message handler in Outlook. Every thing runs normally until I discover that I cannot sync my Contacts with my iPhone, either with iTunes or with MobileMe, although the "Contacts" folder in Outlook contains 300+ names.
After some investigation I found some explanation:
- The Contacts displayed in the Contacts folder of Outlook are from my hotmail address book (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED), and the Outlook contact book is empty!!! No wonder that the result of the sync is nil, because the only option in the sync procedure is to sync Contacts with Outlook.
In order to sync my contacts with my iPhone I think that I need to Move/Copy/Import all the contacts from (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED) to the Outlook Address book.
I don't know if it is possible or not.
Could you tell me?
All inputs are appreciated.
Thank you

A:Windows 7 Outlook 2007 Address book and Sync with iPhone

Well, you can copy/paste them by doing Select All (CTRL-A) on the Hotmail contacts list in Outlook, then Copy (CTRL-C), then switch to the Outlook contact book and Paste (CTRL-V). That should hold you over until a little later this summer when Hotmail adds official support for wireless iPhone contact syncing via the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.

Hope that helps!

Hi there!
I'd like to sync Windows Mobile on an ancient HTC X7500/Advantage (I do not know which version of Mobile) with Calendar in Windows 7. Now I see on the MS site that Mobile only syncs with Outlook; WMDC 6.1 on the Windows 7 computer remains dead in the water. The HTC is recognised, but WMDC 6.1 will just not sync its Agenda with Calendar. The same problem applies with the Vista computer here (no Outlook); there's no problem with the XP machine as this has Outlook installed. So what do I do now? Install Outlook or Outlook Express with Windows 7, which I still have on disk? Or will that cause major trouble, since nothing is ever simple or client-friendly with MS?
Thanks for your help!

Ok..... this one had me really tearing my hair out. For months, trying to get iTunes to "see" my Apple iPhone on my Windows 7 x64 system was like pulling teeth. But I've finally got it to work with a compatibility workaround!

Symptoms:

1) Start iTunes
2) Plug in iPhone
3) iTunes freezes for at least 5 minutes or longer
4) iTunes becomes responsive but no iPhone is recognised (thus no sync can happen)

This would also happen with 1) & 2) reversed (i.e. plugin phone (which Windows 7 x64 recognises immediately)) and then start iTunes. Same freeze up/lock up for 5 mins or longer.

What I tried:

I'd love to bill Apple for the lost time where I tried almost everything out there written on the web. There are hundreds of threads about this very problem going back at least three years.

I tried Apple's "fixes" by restarting their services - no joy
I tried (of course) updating all drivers (Win 7 said I was using latest drivers OK)
I tried updating to every new issue of iTunes that came out but there was never any resolution.
I've wiped out Apple softeare and reinstalled, System Restored and all to no avail.

Then I realised the real problem. Actually the iTunes/iPhone/Win7 x64 combination just does not work, period. Apple seem unwilling (or can't be bothered to effect a fix). They must know about this its all over the net. They just don't care.

So... the solution:

1) Right click the iTunes icon
2) Click 'Properties'
3) Click the 'Compatibility' T... Read more

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my @live.com calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the @live.com calendar is checked).

A:Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

A:Windows 7 Contacts Folder and Live Mail Address Book Not in Sync?

The Contacts folder is left over from Window Vista and if you were to go to the trouble of "reinstating" Windows Mail (the previous mail version that came only with Vista) then it would use the Contacts folder. If you have downloaded and installed WLM (a component of Windows Live Essentials) it has its own contacts database within the <user>/appdata folder tree. You can access this database only through the WLM program (and the website contacts.live.com if you sign-in since that site mirrors your "signed-in" contacts list). If you don't sign-in then you are viewing your "not-signed-in" contacts list in WLM which is also located in the appdata folder tree. If you have placed any contacts in the old Username/Contacts folder, you can import them into WLM.

I can't get my iPhone to properly sync with iTunes under Windows 7 RC 7127.

The iPhone is recognized by the system and its recognized by iTunes, but when I click on sync it starts with iPhone backup first and it gets about 3/4 of the way and just sits there. I can then cancel the sync on the iPhone and try again and get the same problem. So because it never backs up, it never syncs.

I had similar issues with Windows 7 RC 7100 and after I restarted the computer it worked. But with 7127 I can't get it to work at all.

A friend recently upgraded to a new Dell xps 8700 (win 8.1), which I set up for him. iTunes is installed and he has an iPhone. iTunes sees the phone and automatically syncs his music when he plugs his phone in via usb,

He wants to auto sync his photos too. I haven't used iTunes for years, but I see that it will sync photos now and have found a tutorial at apple showing how to set this up.

Questions:

Is iTunes the best (and easiest) method for him to sync his photos (in his My Pictures user folder)?Since he's using his Pictures folder, would a win 8.1 native app (or other) serve him better? If yes on the win8.1 native app (or other) Would there be a conflict, since iTunes would be syncing his music as well, presumably at the same time?

You are going about this the wrong way. You can sync or backup your contacts on gmail contacts. Open a gmail account (its free) then (with phone connected to your PC) go on iTunes under Info and select Sync Contacts with Google Contacts. Presto! Your contacts are now online. Then, you can sync your next smart phone to Google Contacts. You can do the same with Outlook, but that is not free, but if you do it this way, you can export your contacts out of Outlook and print them out as you wish.

Hi everyone. I'm having trouble getting an iPhone setup for email and calendar from our Exchange server, which is running under Small Business Server 2008. Outlook Web Access is working using a sub domain we have set up - https://our.domain.com/owa - this works fine with no problems. But the iPhone refuses to syncEmail = exchnge email addressServer = our.domain.comdomain = ourdomainnameusername = network user namepassword = network passwordSSL is turned onI even tried leaving the domain blank and having username as domain\username, and have also tried adding /owa on the end of the server nameStill no joy. I've always had hassle getting this to work. It just doesn't work as seamlessly as Apple claim I don't think.Is anybody able to help at all?

New problem: cannot WiFi sync iPad/iPhone. Wi-fi sync worked fine prior to new version of iTunes. Apple support is no help: I've checked everything with Apple (& Verizon) troubleshooting. They're suggesting Restore. Also suggested I uninstall/reinstall my Internet Security (Kaspersky 2012). Any thoughts?

I used to be able to sync my iphone to Outlook, but it stopped doing it (years ago actually). I got by without it but need to do it now.
I've looked on Google and have checked various solutions (location of .pst file, removed everything except iTunes Outlook Addin in the Trust Centre) and nothing worked.
I'm running windows 7 and iOS 6.1.2
Help will be appreciated

Hi, I am getting the error message C0000005 7c9118b5 when I try and sync my iphone photos. I saw an old post which suggests removing and reinstalling adobe but I need help with this.
1) How do I do that?
2) What happens to my existing photos on there. How do I save them so that they are not on adobe?
3) Is there a better way to save photos?
4) Any assistance for a computer novice would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance

With former Windows 7 Home Premium I could import pictures & attach to email and sync the IPhone 4. But since upgrading to the free Windows 10 I can no longer do these. A glitch with Windows 10??
I had a prior post on this topic and tried the several solutions offered but was unable to solve the problem. As there were no more solutions offered I then closed down that post and now starting over again hoping to generate different solutions. John, a frustrated old man.

Anyone having trouble syncing their iPhone on Windows 7 with an Intel Core i7 chip? I am. It started yesterday. Tried to restore my iPhone several times, but my device isn't recognized by iTunes and doesn't sync.

A:iPhone Sync/Restore Problems

Gigabyte just released a BIOS update for their P55 chipset motherboards that is supposed to address a problem with those particular units and the Apple iPhone. You might want to check your computer maker's web site.

Hello, I have an iPhone 4 (v4.2.6)jailbroken with greenpois0n rc5, and I just got a new all-in-one desktop, so I want to move my iPhone from my laptop to my new computer. First of all, is there a way to avoid erasing and syncing the device all together? secondly, what exactly will I lose/keep (including installous apps downloaded for free) if I do? If I lose pretty much anything, I'll just update it to 5.0 when it comes out (erasing the jailbreak), and switch it then. Thanks!
 

A:Jailbroken iPhone 4 erase and sync?

This is a very specialized subject and beyond our capabilities to help with such topics. Although it is legal to unlock/jailbreak phones in some countries it is still illegal in others. Several manufacturers use methods to prevent it. Any incorrect advice given can easily render the phone unworkable and we wouldn't want that to happen.

Therefore, I'm closing this thread.

thanks,

So my problem is this. Have had an iphone 3gs for 6 months. I've been using itunes on my PC (windows XP) succesfully to sync and update my phone. Now that the new update has come out I've been wanting to link with itunes to download it but for some reason my computer recognizes my phone as a camera (so i can transfer pictures using my basic Nikon program that's all) but itunes will not recognize the device. This tells me that the USB port is in working order but that's all i know Please help. Also it should be noted that my technological IQ is one notch below retarded so please simplify where possible. Thanks y'all.

They went to Service, Windows 7 was completely new installed and in addion iTues only, nothing else.
Same Problem on both of the porteges. Using these iPhones on our older Z930 works without any Problem.
Also as a test installaion on another PC.

So it seems the poblem is jst with iTunes (12.2.1), iPhone 6and this Special seres portege Z30-A L19.

Can anyone help or have an idea?

I synced my iPhone with my Outlook for the first time and all my calendar events (all are work-related) have been deleted from my computer! The ones from the past that I accepted from my iPhone's outlook are still on the phone. I can't figure out how to sync the iPhone to the Outlook. I do not have Google Calendar.

I have tried Edit -> Preferences -> Devices -> Reset Sync History, but I think that only applies to resetting the device info, not the computer.

My iTunes settings are such that devices do not automatically sync. In iTunes under my iPhone and Info, I have it to sync Outlook -> All Calendars (as there is only one on this comp).

Please help! I need all my calendars to be available at all times.

Thank you!!
